    See the birds of the sky, that they don't sow, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns. Your heavenly Father feeds them. Aren't you of much more value than they? Which of you, by being anxious, can add one cubit to the measure of his life?Why are you anxious about clothing? Consider the lilies o...

I know you who you are: the Holy One of God!' Jesus rebuked him, saying, 'Be quiet, and come out of him!' The unclea...

Hairy Pastors

  • And when you pray, do not heap up empty phrases as the Gentiles do, for they think that they will be heard for their many words. Matt. 6:7 ESV 

    He had no idea what was waiting for him just inside of the church door. I went to seminary with this brother who was praying for a wife. He poured out his heart to God and told Him “Lord I’m lonely, I just want someone to hug me, to kiss me, to tell me that they love me…”

    When he went to church that Sunday, the big hairy pastor met him at the door and hugged him, kissed him on the cheek, and told him that he loved him. At that moment he thought “I need to be more specific in my prayer.” The Lord had given him just what he had prayed for, but it was not delivered in the package that he had envisioned.

    When you pray, tell the Lord exactly what you mean and be specific. It is a personal relationship that we have with Him. Many times I have prayed something very specific and saw God go even beyond it in detail. You are not scaring Him, He is not just creative, He is the Creator. Yes, He knows our needs before we ask Him… but I still saw the brother above being kissed by the pastor.
